Project Updates

My project is running well, so far I have created 12 backpacks of love for kids from traumatic backgrounds who attend camps and counselling / support programs. My next use of the funding will be to create more backpacks, these will be going to kids in foster homes and kids who are in hospital long term. In the next stage of my projects I hope to get some photos which I will then send through.

The $1000 we received in funding from the Melville Youth Pitch has been instrumental in getting Perth Recycled Computers off the ground. With the money, we have been able to buy a new soldering station, e-commerce website software, and a decent amount of business cards. We are also in the process of working out a deal with an overseas supplier to sell some of their custom computer keyboard parts in our shop. We are also looking to sell our own keyboard parts as well. Without receiving the money from the City of Melville, we would not have been able to go nearly as far as we have done so in such a short period of time.

Youth Pitch

The Youth Pitch votes are in! Voting was so close with only 1 vote between the 2 bottom projects we’ve decided to fund all 4.

So the Youth Pitch projects for 2017 are…The Kupu Kupu Project to support children in Indonesia, Walk for Water to help provide clean water for African Communities, SupportStation – a one stop shop for people who are homeless to get supplies and Perth Recycled Computers who salvage and re-build old machines for people who need them.

Everyone’s a winner!
